What is Malarone?

Malarone or generic Malarone tablets are a fixed-dose combination product that acts as blood schizonticide; Furthermore, it is active against liver species of Plasmodium falciparum.

This medicine is indicated for:

  • Plasmodium falciparum malaria prophylaxis in adults.
  • Treatment of malaria by Plasmodium falciparum.

Because MALARONE is effective against P. falciparum species, both sensitive as drug-resistant, it is recommended especially for prophylaxis and treatment of P. falciparum malaria in areas where the pathogen could be resistant to other antimalarials.

How does it work?

The active substances in Malarone are Atovaquone / Proguanil Hydrochloride, which interfere with two different pathways involved in the pyrimidine biosynthesis necessary for nucleic acid replication.

The mechanism of action of atovaquone against P. falciparum is via inhibition of mitochondrial electronic transport, at the level of the bc1 cytochrome complex, and the collapse of the mitochondrial membrane potential.

One of the mechanisms of action of proguanil, through its cycloguanil metabolite, is the inhibition of dihydrofolate reductase, which interrupts the synthesis of deoxythymidylate. Proguanil also has antimalarial activity independent of its metabolization to cycloguanil, and proguanil, but not cycloguanil, is capable of enhancing the ability of atovaquone to collapse the mitochondrial membrane potential in malaria parasites. This last mechanism may explain the synergism observed when atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride are used in combination.

What are the benefits of taking it?

The main Malarone use is to prevent the parasite from reproducing in the body, inhibiting its ability to generate an enzyme it needs to feed. This enzyme, called dihydrofolate reductase, allows the parasite to copy itself by developing a new DNA material. By blocking the production of this substance, Malarone weakens the parasite. This allows the immune system to attack and kill it.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use the Malarone medication exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again.n Take Malarone with food or a milk drink, if possible. It is best to take Malarone every day at the same time.

Malaria prevention:

If you vomit within the first hour after taking Malarone tablets, take another dose as soon as possible; it is important to take the entire Malarone treatment. If you need to take any additional doses due to vomiting, you may need another prescription; If you have been vomiting, it is especially important to use additional protection, such as repellents and mosquito nets. Malarone may not be as effective as the amount absorbed has been reduced.

Malaria treatment:

If you have been vomiting and have diarrhea, see your doctor. You will need regular blood tests. Malarone may not be as effective as the amount absorbed has been reduced.
